Police have launched a murder investigation after bouncer Danny Fox was stabbed to death outside a bar in Liverpool.

Mr Fox was found with a knife wound to the neck on Friday morning outside Dreem Bar, St Helens.

The 29-year-old was taken to hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

Two 18-year-old women have been arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender. Both have since been bailed.

Mr Fox had previously appeared on E4's reality TV show Tattoo Fixers, where he explained why he wanted to get rid of a crude tattoo, describing himself as "good boyfriend material" who wanted to find a girlfriend and finally settle down.

"I’ve got a lot of love to give, and I’ve got no one to give it to," he added.

Dreem Bar, where Mr Fox had previously worked, posted on Facebook to say: "It's with great sadness we have lost one of the most adored and best door lads in town. He was like family to us, all Dreem bar staff are in utter disbelief.

"Danny wasn't just a door lad he was part of the Dreem team and will be greatly missed.

"Sleep tight our blue eyes Danny Fox."

Detectives are appealing for anyone who has any information about this incident to contact St Helens CID on (0151) 7776881, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
